1926 Standard House Plans: The Warren

The Warren is a cute little cottage with a sensible garage that houses the car without taking over the facade. It has mixed elements from both bungalow and Colonial Revival styles. The bungalow contributes the low clipped gable roof line and exposed beams. The Colonial Revival adds the front porch columns and railings. It's a skinny little house that--at 22 feet wide--would fit on all but the narrowest lots. It's less than 1000 square feet, but manages in its little footprint to provide two bedrooms, a bathroom, and living areas. Amenities include closets that have casement windows for airing contents. Garage access to the house is through the basement.

"Now that reliable insurance companies in most of the states permit the basement garage without excessive insurance rates, many builders are taking advantage of the garage idea show above. In addition to the convenience, and the saving in the initial cost, one's car is far better protected under all weather conditions, and its life is thereby materially lengthened."
